Sesam GeniE software for offshore structural engineering

Offshore structural engineering

Sesam GeniE is a world renowned offshore structural engineering software tool for design and analysis of fixed and floating structures. It gives you the optimal basis for critical engineering decisions during the entire lifecycle of your asset.

FEM software (finite element method)

  • Concept modelling and automated processes support your need for fast design iterations
  • Static and dynamic structural analysis incorporating environmental load calculation (wind, waves, current)
  • All analyses are based on the Finite Element Methodology (FEM software) where beams and plates are connected
  • One graphic user interface for FEM modelling, finite element analysis and results evaluation
  • One common model used for all phases from initial to final design, as well as for modifications, repair and life extension
  • Wide range of analyses within offshore and marine structural engineering: code checking, load-out, transportation, launching, installation, fatigue, earthquake, progressive collapse, accidents, explosions
  • Imports data from other FEM software or CAD systems

Concept modelling for design optimization in offshore structural engineering

Engineers are constantly looking for new solutions that offer faster design processes. The unique concept modelling in Sesam GeniE maintains connectivity between structural components and loads throughout design alterations, leading to efficient design optimization even with frequent, significant changes in the design process.

One software tool for both fixed and floating structures

Use Sesam GeniE for all analysis stages for fixed structures - and also for ships and offshore floaters. This includes jackets, jack-ups, semi-submersibles, TLPs, FPSOs, vessels, etc. A structural analysis gives the results for you to assess the structure, whether this involves deflections, forces, stresses, code check results or fatigue.

One common model from initial to final design

With Sesam GeniE you use one common model from the initial design phase through all design revisions to the final design of the structure. Later modifications, repairs and life extensions are based on the same model. From the same concept model you create analysis models for hydrostatic, hydrodynamic and structural analyses. The concept model can also be based on imported data from other CAD/CAE systems.
